A settlement has been reached in the Tom Petty estate battle between the rock legend’s widow and his two daughters from a previous marriage.
This past spring — Petty’s daughters Adria Petty and Annakim Violette — sued Dana York Petty for $5 million after claiming that the widow superseded the daughters’ rights to “equal participation” over decisions involving the singer’s estate and catalog.
However, legal documents show that both parties, as well as Petty’s long-time manager Anthony Dimitriades, reached a “settlement agreement” on December 10th in regard to the estate battle. Details of the settlement were not revealed.
The estate disagreement impacted the release of the posthumous collection An American Treasure and scuttled a planned 25th anniversary edition of Petty’s acclaimed 1994 album Wildflowers; the status of that box set reissue remains unknown.
